Thoughts on this season: “I think it was a great season,” head coach Greg Troyer said. “Number one the kids had a lot of fun. We had great teamwork and comradery. They worked hard together, and that’s always how you base the end of the season on.”
Highlight of the season: “Placing second at regionals,” Dawson said. “Last year we didn’t pass it and it was a total confidence boost knowing we had one more shot to keep the season going.”
Goals for next year: “Our realistic goals are to be really competitive in conference, to be up near the top and to advance from regionals to sectionals,” Troyer said.
